Connection Settings

Overview

The Connection Settings feature is where you enter the following information to establish a connection between Salesforce and an Orchestrator or UiPath Automation Cloud tenant:

For an Orchestrator tenant, the connection settings are:

  • Orchestrator URL
  • Tenant Name
  • Named Credential / User Credentials (Username and Password)
  • Folder (Classic Folder or Modern Folder)

For an Automation Cloud tenant, the connection settings are:

  • Account Logical Name
  • Tenant Logical Name
  • Named Credential / API Access Key (Client Id and User Key)
  • Folder (Classic Folder or Modern Folder)

After entering the information above, the connector authenticates your credentials and creates the connection. After successfully adding your connection settings, you can start building your templates. For more information about building templates, see Templates.

You have the option to create multiple connections to the same or different Tenant. Each connection requires its own connection settings and may include the same or different credentials (i.e., username, password). Adding multiple connections to the same Tenant is useful if you plan to have multiple teams or individuals that want to manage their own connections and templates.
